We have clear skies and calm winds early on this Wednesday morning and there is a wide range of temperatures, it is 40 degrees now in Clifton but readings range from the low 50s up in High Point to the low 30s in some of the inland valleys.
Today we will have plenty of sunshine and temperatures will rise quickly after sunrise reaching the 70s by late this morning, record highs are likely and some spots may even hit the 80 degree mark. High pressure offshore will give us a southwest flow of unseasonably warm temperatures.
It will be quite mild tonight with lows only dropping down to the 50s and Thursday we could expect more warm temperatures with highs in the 70s however clouds will increase late in the day and there is a chance of showers in the afternoon and evening as a cold front approaches the area.
Cooler on Friday but temperatures will still be well above normal with plenty of sunshine.
The weekend still looks to be mild but shower chances will increase by the afternoon on Sunday.
Chances of showers will continue early next week with continued above normal temperatures.
